Description

We often speak about performance in IOPS, which is important to many workloads. For other workloads like big data, data warehouse and similar, throughput can be an important metric. Today you can witness Storage Spaces Direct in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5 as it hits 60GBs per second. Yes, that's GigaBytes. For some context, that's the entire English language text of Wikipedia - but 5 times per second!

    Hi,

    could you provide the script to measure the IOPS and throughput (left side on the top)?

    That would be awesome!

    BR,
